Once the booth is launched into "Booth Mode," there is no in-app button to return to settings.

This is designed to work together with guided access to prevent people from accessing your settings as well as other sensitive information on your iPad.

Test Mode

Test Mode allows you to return to your settings quickly and easily in order to make changes while you're testing.

When launching, choose the "test" option in order to use test mode. You'll return to your settings with a button available on your "tap to start" screen.

Booth Mode

If you have launched into "Booth Mode" and need to make a change to your settings, there are two methods to get back to your settings.

Quit The App

  1. Disable Guided Access if it is still enabled

  2. Quit your app using these instructions

  3. Find the app icon again on your iPad (or search for it) and open it up. You will be able to change settings before you launch the booth again.

Use Mission Control

  1. While your app is resting on the start screen, place two fingers side-by-side on the screen.

  2. Slowly “pinch out” by sliding your fingers in opposite directions.

When done properly, a new status menu will appear with a button on the left-hand side to return to your settings.

While Booth Status is intentionally “difficult” to find, we strongly recommend using a password or Face ID for your iPad to prevent participants from being able to return to your settings from this area.

Customizing HALO Online

When using the HALO app you can always make live changes to your settings from your online account. These will automatically sync to the app after a session or two, depending on the WiFi network the iPad is on.
